The Square Root of Negative One

Welcome, BoN!

Random technical wiki fact #5

The pipe trick can save you from some fidgety editing, especially when trying to link across namespaces.

For example: by typing in [[Forum:Loya Jirga|]] the software will automatically place [[Forum:Loya Jirga|Loya Jirga]] for you when saving, resulting in Loya Jirga.

Another useful trick is disambiguations such as [[mass (physics)|]], which is automatically replaced with [[mass (physics)|mass]], resulting in mass.

You can even use this to link to other wikis, e.g, [[wp:Help:Pipe trick|]] produces Help:Pipe trick.

WARNING: This page is very messy!

  • Maybe I am just imaginary... It's all in your head...
  • I like to do less talking, and more work, unlike many other you may know...
  • No, this is not my alt account
  • If my writing is incoherent, overly formal or contains unfunny/unoriginal commentary that distracts from missionality; english was never my first language, and I am doing my best to become familiar with it. I think I am doing a good job...?
  • I have some strange obsession with uploading pictures to RW. Here.
  • I am not very into politics, but I am very active in refuting pseudoscience and quackery. Let me know if you need some debunking.
  • Anyone can follow whatever religion or cult they want, under the following conditions:-
    • Admit that their stories are not historically or scientifically accurate and only, well, stories that are created to teach people their morals.
    • It must abide by science, and not spread hate of any certain community.
    • It must not be enforced on anyone.
  • I have more than 1000 edits. More than 700 hundred are actually mainstream.
  • I have support for socialism (in form of a mixed economy) but none for communism or stalinism.
  • Hello. This is your family speaking. We don't know where you will find this in your dream, but it's the only chance we have got. You have been in a deep sleep for years now. Please stop, it was all a dream. Wake up.

Random update: Hello there. I am still alive, but I am currently grappling with some real life stuff. I still lurk around and make minor edits. It’s been well over an year since I have been really active, but I am sure I will return one day.The 𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 17:19, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

Article list

These are my significant contributions, my to do list, and also my frequently visited article list! I know, this page is a goddamned mess I will never clean up.


...I was told that this drama was “no where near the Israel-Palestine,” apparently, about which I knew nothing about. I thought this should probably be the peak level of headless chicken mode I will experience at my stay at RW. Until, y’know…


I know poised rationality is a fetish among academically/professionally/emotionally/sexually frustrated tweens on the internet suffering from an unfortunate lack of constant praise and reverence
User:Lambchowder (talk to this guy!)
You have your janky platform here riddled with the brainwashed, the immature, and operatives, and just like assholes, bellybuttons, and opinions... I guess you all ought to be proud for making anti-counter-propaganda since you clearly support the Big Brother "official" narrative.
User:JasonCarswell (refutation extraordinaire, and totally not pissed off)

>Non-believers, including freethinkers, rationalists and Buddhists, are not to be entertained respectfully as guests; though, mercifully, they may be given food. (Manusmriti, MS IV: 30)

>The families of non-believers are destroyed sooner than later. (Manusmriti, MS III: 65)

>If a woman should not grant her man his desire, he should bribe her. If she still does not grant him his desire, he should hit her with a stick or with his hand, and overcome her, saying: 'With power, with glory I take away your glory!' Thus she becomes inglorious. (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 6.4.7)

>Women should never be allowed by their guardians to act independently. (Manusmriti, IX: 2)

BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, Sqrt-1, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.

My 1.16 run was just rejected after research due to it being "too unlikely to verify". A video was made by a head mod and Youtuber Geosquare, using my name and clickbaiting "Cheating Speedrunning" in order to get easy views. Definitely a response soon. Total BS!
